Five new Pantech phones
Increasingly prevalent in the States, Pantech is using the CTIA expo to preview five new phones. The preeminent models are the C600 and C710, which are described as 3G models capable of Bluetooth stereo and various other high-end functions. The 710 is the most powerful of the two, boasting stereo speakers, a 1.3-megapixel camera, and a client for video-sharing.
The next step down is the C510, which drops a speaker and 3G abilities such as video sharing, but can still record videos, and play MP3 files with benefit of front-mounted controls. The C150 will have MP3 downloading and a VGA camera, while the C3b is an upgrade to the existing C3, merely adding Bluetooth. While some images of the phones are available (see below), Pantech has not yet announced carriers or release dates.
